Friday's schedule was highlighted by a media photo shoot on the field with the goal posts and an outline of the field in place. UCF also checked out the GAA Museum at the stadium, which is a must-see for American fans visiting Ireland for the game.

Up in the suite level of Croke Park, discussions heated up on an upcoming community service event in Dublin, where Habitat for Humanity Ireland in partnership with volunteer teams from UCF, PSU and Croke Park will work on renovation of the Lourdes Parish Community Hall, which helps primarily local youth in the area.

UCF also took part in more planning for August fan events by meeting with the Old Jameson Distillery and Dublin Castle, along with stopping in the Temple Bar area.

On Saturday, UCF will visit the Guinness Storehouse and then work with Anthony Travel and Abbey Tours to establish a media hotel for August. Sunday closes out the trip as UCF and Penn State will get to see the stadium in action with the Allianz Football League Finals.
